COMMUNITY DESCRIPTION AND HISTORY:

Spring Branch East is uniquely and conveniently located just outside the 610 Loop and is minutes from Downtown, Memorial Park, The Galleria, The Heights, Memorial Villages and Memorial City Mall. Spring Branch East enjoys ample access to US 290 and the newly widened and improved I-10. New home construction is occurring at an ever-increasing pace in many of the single-family deed restricted subdivisions especially near Wirt Road and in several gated subdivisions replacing deteriorated apartment complexes. There are industrial, warehouse and retail developments along the northern part of the community near Hempstead Highway and US 290. The former site of the Cameron Iron Works on I-10, on the community's southern boundary, is now a retail and entertainment complex.
